List of signatories of the Manifesto for a new popular internationalism in Europe

2 April 2020 by ReCommons Europe

Today, 2nd of April 2020, we publish again the list of the 160 first signatories of the Manifesto for a new popular internationalism in Europe, which was publicly presented in March 2019.

In the current context of the Covid-19 epidemic, we think it is more than ever important to push the search and debate of alternatives to the system we currently live in. In the face of the policy that defends the interests of capital, this manifesto aims to propose an emergency program “that a popular left government would need to follow in its first year of office in order to provide immediate responses to the social and ecological emergencies, and defeat the inevitable resistance by conservative forces and the institutions which represent them”.
This also concerns the need for an effective and fair health policy, which responds only to the interests and needs of the majority, but which does not forget that this policy will have to be part of a broader package.

Finally, the re-publication of this manifesto allows us to introduce a second strand of ReCommonsEurope’s work concerning entitled “The impact on the South of European financial policies and development cooperation strategies and possible alternatives”. This work concerns the following areas: the indebtedness of the countries of the South vis-à-vis the countries of the North, free trade agreements, migration and border management policies, militarism, the arms trade and the wars, and reparation policies regarding the spoliation of cultural goods. We will publish each of these axes as separate chapters in the coming weeks.
